Column: New Jersey’s governor blocked the growth of its best charter schools. Why?

Murphy is a Democrat who says he supports charters, although his party is influenced by teachers unions that don’t like the fact that most charters are not unionized. Teachers unions have called charters a financial drain on regular public schools. I don’t understand that argument since parents seem to me entitled to send their kids to charters their taxes help pay for.
